Betting: Everton favourites against Norwich City but it’s hard to predict

While Norwich City endure an extended run of indifferent form, during which they've managed just one win in six Premier League outings, tomorrow's visitors, Everton, are in rude health.

Based on results from their last eight league matches, the Blues would be fourth in the league table. So despite Norwich enjoying home advantage, it will come as no surprise to learn that bookies have encountered some difficulty this week when attempting to decide which of the pair will emerge victorious when they meet at Carrow Road tomorrow.

Some bookies couldn't split them, but in the end, opted to price the Canaries at 2/1, while Blue Square posted a slightly shorter 6/4 price against Everton. Given the relative proximity of these prices, punters might be best advised to take note of Ladbrokes' 12/5 price chalked against the draw.

Though David Moyes' men continue to harbour increasingly realistic Europa League qualification hopes, Norwich appear to be safe from the threat of relegation. It's a scenario which suggests that supporters could be in for an entertaining match.

The pair drew 1-1 at Goodison Park earlier in the season after Norwich, who held the lead thanks to a Grant Holt strike, conceded a Leon Osman goal eight minutes from time. This time Norwich, who have failed to score in only seven of their 31 league fixtures, are 10/11 with Blue Square to open the scoring. Elsewhere, Stan James marks an attractive 9/2 against City securing three points following a drawn opening 45 minutes.

The likelihood of being all square at half-time is rated a 5/4 shot by Coral, while punters who believe this will establish a second half trend can get 9/2 (Boylesports) about both halves finishing with honours even.

In other markets, Skybet chalk an attractive 5/6 about the fixture yielding more than 2.5 goals, while Paddy Power mark 15/8 in favour of it producing a penalty and William Hill offer 15/8 for the game's opening goal to arrive inside the first 15 minutes.
